Stand up for your feet. That is the message from David Armstrong, DPM, Ph.D., a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery and a podiatric surgeon.
To keep feet healthy, Dr. Armstrong recommends people look at their feet daily or have someone do it for them. Check for ulcers or wounds, for redness, swelling, or an ingrown toenail, as well as any wound bleeding into the sock. He joins us today to talk about foot health, diabetes, and more.
Dr. Armstrong is a Professor of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and co-director of the USC Limb Preservation Program. He has produced more than 510 peer-reviewed research papers in dozens of medical journals as well as over 90 book chapters, is co-editor of the American Diabetes Association’s Clinical Care of the Diabetic Foot, now in its third edition, and was the first podiatric surgeon to become a member of the Society of Vascular Surgery.
